    2016 AF1 MotoGP party -- Friday April 8th

    Brainstorming for how to make this 2016 party the biggest yet.

    We'll be settled into the new space by then so it will also be like our Grand Opening party too.

    We have the MUCH bigger shop on nearly two acres of property. We can be as loud and wild as we want. It is a little noisy outside from IH35 right there. Our neighbor should also let us use his parking lot for even more car parking maybe 60-70 more spots.

    What would everyone like to see? We need more stuff to do so people don't get bored.

    Live band outside? Style of music?
    Food trucks? It's been hard to feed everyone in the past.
    Carnival style game booths outside? MC style prizes
    Vendor and supplier booths outside?
    More barely dressed models? For sure...
    Slow race competition in the parking lot? Who has the best balance?
    Use two equal cheap junk scooters and have a race around some cones. Head to head elimination or time trials. Gear required.

    Like the past ones, we'll push aprilia hard to do something fun, and invite celebs and pro racers to mingle with us.

    Feedback welcome

    plan on a party!!!!!

    Food trucks yes !!! Maybe some home town franklins (best in the area barbecue ) You know when we get in town we always look for Barbecue? Blues\ Rock and Roll and alcohol ? With uber on stand by. Trivia questions with prizes ? Vendor and supplier booth we love stuff to look at. Maybe a dunking booth for charity we love to dunk the owners or the models .

    I will be happy with coming in and meeting the guru's face to face. will have to holdback and resist asking for too much guidance on installation of the goodies that I will pick up. see you then. by the way. any issues with buying and having the stuff shipped due to limited luggage space due to a fly in type guy.

    Yeeeeah baby!...my third AF1Racing Grand Opening party!!

    Couple quick ideas here..

    -Photo Ops. Hot ladies/bikes, big group pic, RSV4 posed in a race scenario with backdrop and you get on to "fake" the shot.
    -The moto-wheelie machine. Though might get annoying...lol
    -Custom t-shirt/hat/patches/decals made on site? Maybe not free obviously
    -Out Door blow-up theater screen showing lots of stunting videos...ha!. Alamo Drafthouse uses one in the park sometimes.
    -Dyno Runs. just to make noise and it's pretty dam cool if you've never seen it up close.
    -Nice big banner for all to sign and display after party. Big Banner to take to the track!
    -A new moto themed mural that actually gets made thru the weekend.
    -RC motorcycle track with 6-8 Motos to destroy....I mean race.
    -Moto trivia for prizes
    -Shuttle bus/vans to the track. Again, maybe not free
    -Set-up tents/banner and save spot in GA seating area for each day.

    All I got for now, but will keep adding ideas...

    I really want to get down there next year, especially since Indy dropped off.

    None of my friends are biting though...might end up driving my own ass all the way from NJ...

    This is true, but the road trip is (was...) part of the experience for me.

    Plus, not that it matters for a solo traveler, but cars get much cheaper the more people you bring. 3 people and a halfway decent car, you can get across the country far cheaper than flying. All while setting your own schedule, keeping the pocket knife in your pocket, not waiting for baggage claims....etc

    Indy is an easy road trip for me. Straight though, one stop for gas, there in 10 hours. NJ to TX is a bit of a hike, though. I may end up flying if no one wants to go with.

    I'll be there with 3 of my fellow Canucks in tow. We scored some GP tickets via Shark Helmets that get us a few perks. Most significantly the post race GP party with the teams/riders and entry to the racetrack on Thursday when teams are setting up.
    I can't tell you how much we (4 middle age dudes that can still bring it ) are looking forward to the week and without doubt the AF1 Party is high on our list.

    Are there tickets to purchase, a VIP list for someone of my stature or what? Whatever the protocol, sign me up please.
    '14 Tuono, matte black, Akrapovic full Ti system, Race ECU, Ohlin's rear shock, Lightech Ltd "R" rearsets, Carbon fender, hugger & side panels, Lightech mirrors, Luimoto seat covers, Brembo RCS 17 with folding levers, black Rizoma bars, 520 chain +2 on the rear, MRA sport screen
